Dear Jane C5 or Eye of the Cyclone
First, I made a pinwheel and cut a circle with extra for the seam allowance.
Although slightly different than the template in the Dear Jane book or even in Jane Stickle's quilt, I like Fabadashery's version the best. And although it looks trickier, I realized all I would have to do is make a pinwheel, then sew two strips together and cut out four moon shapes from them. Finally I would only have to applique the moon shapes on top of the pin wheel.
And I would like to point out that Cyclone was half of Molly's size but twice as naughty. She liked to climb up me to get to higher places to snoop around. Also, she was the first to climb up the design wall. And she only had two speeds: fast and faster. No off button for her. Yes, I miss her very much. But almost every naughty thing Molly does, she learned from her sister Cyclone.
